I have an interest in a project called OpenMeetings (which I think
required Java), and currently I would like to learn Python language,
and what you can do with python.

I looked at a few YouTube videos, but staying awake is an issue.  Can
you recommend any good ones ?

My laptop current runs Debian Jessie XFCE so I installed eclipse,
eclipse-cdt, eclipse-subclipse, subversion, sellarium, and pydev (via

I was then able to do the usual print("Hello World") in Eclipse and
Python.   Now I would like to learn the language, maybe a physical
book would be best for me, not sure. Will try a few more videos first
as book stores don't seem to bother to stock IT books anymore and I
have yet to master the concept of "ordering", except with it comes to
sort algorithms.

The name Python is based on the TV show called Monty Python's Flying
Circus. During execution the Python source code is translated into
bytecode which is then interpreted by the Python interpreter. Python
source code can also run on the Java Virtual Machine, in this case you
are using Jython.

George, there are many Cluggers who use Eclipse quite a lot and could
probably present on it. In the meantime, search YouTube for Eclipse
tutorials - there are many. Some are even good.

What is it that you want to achieve? Is there a Java app you're
itching to write? Is there a Java project you want to contribute to?
Something else?

Eclipse can do a lot more than Java, but it's usually associated with
Java development.

If you are writing code in a text editor then running a compiler,
sifting through the errors, rewriting the code, compiling, reading
library docs, rinse, lather, repeat...   then eclipse is awesome. If
you just want to play with an IDE... I'm not sure anyone here can

Did people know that Microsoft is now offering  Visual Studio
Community for free (a community version)?  At least that is  if I
read this correctly.  This is not Visual Studio Ultimate, and so I do
not as yet know what is missing from the community version


Then there is another version of Visual Studio that can run on Linux.
Visual Studio Code PREVIEW

Code editing redefined and optimized for building and debugging modern
web and cloud applications. Visual Studio Code is free and available
on your favorite platform—Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows.

And there is something about .Net being able to run on Linux. Not sure
why you would want to do this, but I guess there are reasons.

Which brings me to a suggestion for a Clug meeting topic (or several),
is there anyone who could teach us how to use Eclipse ?  I have
attempted this in the past but due to limited time, I never really got
to understand how Eclipse works.
